Description

In 2000, there were improvements made to the Net Merit selection index and the Type Production Index (TPI). These changes represent definite progress in providing dairy producers with tools to select more profitable cows rather than cows that simply produce more milk. This paper explains some of the changes and describes some of the benefits for producers.
